The Phinney Ridge Community Council and Phinney Neighborhood Association are hosting a candidates forum for the new Seattle City Council District 6 from 2-4 p.m. on Saturday, June 6, at the PNA, 6532 Phinney Ave. N., in the Brick Building.
Incumbent Councilmember Mike O’Brien and challengers Catherine Weatbrook, Jon Lisbin and Stan Shaufler will answer questions on zoning, land use, development, transportation, environment, civic engagement, public safety, etc.
“The move to district elections represents one of the biggest political changes in Seattle in years,” PRCC board member Ted Inkley said in a press release. “It’s important that District residents learn the views of those who want to represent them, and equally important that the candidates hear residents’ concerns. This is especially critical given the important decisions facing City Hall during this time of rapid growth and change in Seattle.”
